Acer is present in Berlin this week and the manufacturer took the opportunity to lift the veil on the Predator Orion 9000 , a computer with phenomenal computing power.
Acer has been interested in the world of gaming for several years and it even has a range entirely dedicated to this use in its catalog. Far from remaining on its achievements, the firm enriches it frequently and it had thus rewarded us a little earlier in the year with a transportable PC equipped with a monstrous configuration, the Predator 21 X.
This time, the manufacturer has chosen to focus on the desktop with an extremely impressive tower.
Predator Orion 9000: Tower of Excess
The Predator Orion 9000 can house several distinct configurations and it will also come with a significant number of options to give gamers as much choice as possible.
The case will not change. Huge and imposing, it will thus feature a large plexiglass cutout on the side to give you an unparalleled point of view on the bowels of your combat machine. History to put a layer, Acer also chose to place several LEDs at the front of the tower to give it a more futuristic look.
As a bonus, the firm has integrated two handles in the upper cover of the central unit to facilitate movement.
On the technical side, the Predator Orion 9000 is clearly not in the lace and it will thus be able to house an extremely muscular configuration. Users will be able to opt for an Intel Core i9 7980XE made up of eighteen cores and four RX Vega 64 graphics cards in CrossFireX, all with 128 GB of RAM just to drive the point home.
As a package or à la carte, as desired
According to the Taiwanese giant, to the best of its ability, the tower should allow us to play in 8K and we must admit that it is very impressive. Of course, to take advantage of the brand's top-of-the-range configuration, you'll have to spit on the bassinet and thus line up a check for $ 7,000.
Fortunately, Acer offers its tower in several other configurations, including one offered at 2000 €. For this price, gamers will be entitled to an Intel Core i7, a GeForce GTX 1070 and 32 GB of RAM.
Behind, there are also plenty of options to install a liquid cooling system in the tower or four GeForce GTX 1080Ti in SLI. In short, you will understand, the firm has not done things by halves.
